I just got the new NCSA httpd1.0 und found the following problem :

I've got a file
with the URL-link to <A HREF="private.html"> placed in the same directory.
Under version httpd_1.0a5 the corresponding file was served correctly,
but with the new version I only get :

<HEAD><TITLE>404 Not Found</TITLE></HEAD>
<H1>404 Not Found</H1><BODY>
The requested URL /private.html was not found on this server.<P>

an in logs/error_log I get :

[Tue Dec 14 17:36:01 1993] httpd: access to /mathsoft/WWW/http_root_dir/private.html failed for euler-bb, reason: file does not exist

where : ServerRoot /mathsoft/WWW/httpd
DocumentRoot /mathsoft/WWW/http_root_dir
UserDir public_html
DirectoryIndex index.html

===> which means he is trying to fetch the document from the
document root of the server and not from my directory.

Have I configured something wrong ( I just copied the most parts ..) ??
